Storyline

In 2004, this documentary was released to celebrate twenty-years of "The Osterman Weekend". This movie was the last work of the great director Sam Peckinpah, who had been in the ostracism for five years in Hollywood. With the testimony of the cast (Meg Foster, Rutger Hauer, Craig T. Nelson, Chris Sarandon, Helen Shaver, Cassie Yates), the producers and other participants of the shootings, many interesting information, some of them funny, other sad, about the film and mainly about the situation of Sam Peckinpah in those times, are disclosed to the viewer. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

pretty good
14 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This 1 hour 18 minute feature length documentary can be found on Anchor Bay's Commemorative 2-DVD set of the movie "The Osterman Weekend". It features interviews with pretty much every cast and crew member still living (barring Dennis Hopper for some unknown reason). Casting, pre-production, production, post are all covered here. As well as Sam Packinpah's troubles. But it's a testimony to the acclaimed director that he got the cast merely because it was him doing it. It's all pretty interesting and informative, and it's always nice to hear from Rutger Hauer. Not as good as say "Full Tilt Boogie" but movie documentaries rarely are.

My Grade: B
